UNL Students To Install Renewable Energy System At Kenyan School


Three members of The World Energy Project traveled from Omaha to Kapkemich, Kenya on Monday where they will install a renewable energy system at St.Anne’s Girls’ School that they designed and built themselves.

WEP also recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds necessary to design, build, and install a renewable energy system at a school on the island nation of Cape Verde, off the coast of West Africa.

Global Partners in Hope is an international non-profit organization based in Omaha that seeks to bring hope to communities around the world through partnerships between people who can help and people who need hope.

The World Energy Project is a division of GPiH, formed and operated by current and former University of Nebraska-Lincoln students who hail from across the state.

They are committed to assisting childhood development by providing the electricity necessary to enhance education in schools in developing countries.
